Full-time professional footballer and student

Flo Allen, Sports Business undergraduate and professional footballer.

“Studying Sports Business management has been an amazing experience and one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. I had 3 exceptional years of learning and exploring the sports business environment and I particularly enjoyed my final year dissertation project, as well as other modules such as sustainability and globally responsible leadership.

As a full-time professional footballer, juggling both a degree and a career was at times very challenging, however, I had excellent support from my personal tutor and course lead Steven Piper. The support provided was exceptional, they understood my circumstances and provided me with the tools to learn around my busy schedule.

After my career as a professional, I have aspirations to continue working in high performance sport on the business and management side. The tools and opportunities I have gained whilst studying sports business management at the University of Gloucestershire has provided me with both qualifications and the opportunity for a dual-career.”
